With a broad and deep expertise in developing leaders, we bring a systemic approach to supporting organisations to optimise their talent so that their people achieve their best performance and thrive in the workplace. We provide coaching, facilitation and feedback solutions drawing on our training and evidence-based methodologies to meet the unique needs of your leaders and teams.
HOW WE HELP
We offer a variety of leadership development workshops which are tailor-made to meet the needs of the organisation. Our approach is highly interactive, and our workshops can be linked to individual or small-group coaching to reinforce the learning and subsequent behaviour change.
Creating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive starts with the leadership team. The way in which leaders behave – build relationships, offer feedback, listen and include others – affects the way they, and their teams perform. Being an inclusive leader can, for some, require some behavioural changes which are not always easy or straightforward to adopt.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Drawing on our experience in HR, systemic coaching and in the field of diversity and inclusion we work with our clients to:
Raise self-awareness through the use of psychometric tools (e.g. Hogan) and feedback to help highlight potential blind spots and identify development areas
Facilitate team sessions using a systemic approach to enhance relationships and build a sense of belonging
Lead peer-to-peer coaching circles where participants share an issue they have faced and receive coaching from their peers
Development of coaching skills in managers and leaders
Provide one-to-one Inclusive Leadership coaching drawing on the 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership by Jim Dethmer, Dian Chapman and Kaley Warner Klemp and the work of Amy Edmonson on psychological safety

Catalyst is a simple and cost effective programme that can be rapidly deployed in any organisation that wishes to adopt a coaching culture and sees the value of changing the mindsets of its leaders and managers.
Sarah worked with a Director in a Financial Services organisation who wanted help developing his relationships with his team and building his confidence as a leader.
A driven and ambitious newly promoted Director came to coaching struggling with stress and time management. With the support of our coach, she was able to see how different working styles
A new manager wanted to take action following feedback he had received at work. He was keen to improve his reputation, specifically to ensure that other people
"I think Sarah strikes the perfect balance between a professional and personal approach. She creates a very comfortable tone and atmosphere but also knows how to read you as an individual to challenge you at the right time and in the right way.
"I contacted Sarah as I wanted help working out what to do next in my career. She has a very concrete and constructive approach to coaching, meaning that we had open, rational discussions - which I liked. I feel that I now have a better understanding of what type of work will potentially suit my personality best, and some real options for my next career move."
"Sarah has helped me think through a big career transition, which I have been having trouble deciding on. She helped me identify my core values, which subconsciously influence my decisions and long-term satisfaction. After identifying these values, I was able to make some bold decisions with a lot of self-assuredness that were otherwise difficult to act upon. Sarah also helped me think through people management in a manner where I discovered the solution myself rather than being preached at. It has been a pleasure working with her and I continue to recommend her highly."
"I approached Sarah for coaching after experiencing a difficult period personally and professionally. I was feeling unsure of myself, what I wanted and where I was going. Sarah was incredibly empathetic and made me feel listened to and understood. Working with her helped give me the confidence and the strategies to take back control of my life. I went from being passive and unsure to proactively forging opportunities for myself and tackling head on some of the difficult decisions I faced.
As a result, I left a job in which I was very unhappy and am now setting up my own business - something I have aspired to do for a long time. Sarah is an astounding coach and an inspiring woman. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
